(visited by Donald Staal and Monique Van der Hulst)

15-Aug-2001 -- On our way from the western part to the eastern part of Spain, we passed a confluence that was conveniently situated very close to a road, which meant that we only had to leave the motorway for a few kilometres. We parked our car at a side road of the road from Camarzana de Tera to Santa Maria de Tera and continued on foot. We only had to walk for a few hundred metres to a muddy field that clearly belonged to a nearby farm.

As we came closer to the confluence, nasty dogs started barking and we became a bit uneasy. Fortunately, at siesta time the chances of bumping into an angry farmer are close to zero and we baldly continued our way. We sneaked up the side of the field, which was slightly elevated. There were some bushes and trees growing and the confluence turned out to be in between the shrubs. We quickly snapped some photo's (we had to change the film in our camera, which seemed to take ages while the dogs seemed to be barking louder and coming closer) and hurried back to the car. All in all, this blitz confluence visit took less than ten minutes. In fact, it was so easy that we were surprised to find that this confluence hadn't been visited yet.
